My heating is on 24/7 at the moment, lol.
Mine tomoney just flying out the window :P

Until the bug regarding HouseMode is resolved I am not getting much further. Good news is that sambuca and possy is working on the bug.

Regarding the Time of Day issue I have don a lot of testing, but the only thing I can test against is DAY and NIGHT so this does not help much.

You can change the "Seconds before power off" for the onscreen orbiter.

Time of Day > 05:00
Time of Day < 11:00
I have been trying this using various formats but never been successful. If you get this to work that would be grate.

Do you know anything about State, and about creating custom Room, House, and User modes?
No, but this looks very interesting.

Hi Chris

This is exactly the same thing I want to do. At the moment I have only implemented a system for my car heater and a simple event that turns on the heater in the bedroom a set time before we go to bed and wake up (it has to be manually turned off). I am documenting my progress here:

Also, I would like to setup a rule to turn on the heat when the temp drops below a certain threshold between certain hours of the day, but am not sure if I can specify a range for the Time of Day box. How should I approach this?
I am experimenting with this at the moment, but i think the only parameter you can use are DAY and NIGHT which are controlled by  sunup/sundown. If it was possible to specify a time range I think I can create the logic required to do most of what you describe.

Going forward I would like to do some cool stuff and turn off heat if no movement has been detected for a long period (several hours). I'm not sure quite how to approach that either as a motion sensor normally has a low delay (5 mins max) and I don't want to have a whole extra set of motion sensors. It would be nice if the house could drop back to the sleeping mode if no movement was detected for 1 hour and it was not in away mode. Any thoughts on this? I could script this externally but it would be nice to do in LinuxMCE.
I think this can be accomplished using the DCErouter Delay command.

I suppose ideally you would like to have multiple heating profiles and have different temp thresholds for each room - e.g. Low, Normal, Sleep, etc. You should be able to trigger those then from other events or buttons on the orbiters. Is this possible? I am having a hard time seeing how to trigger room and house mode changes at all from other scenarios. Which device do you target?
House mode can be changed from an event using "Security Plug-in -- Set house mode" command.

Sorry this is a bit long. Hope someone has some info here!
I hope this was off some help. It is nice to see someone whit the same vision for LinuxMCE.

PS! You can cache me on irc I am usually on from 1800CET just ping me.

i will try to go through my steps:
Thank you for helping, here are my steps to set up the event.

From the top menu:

Then I pushed:
Create advanced event
Gave it a name and chose "Temperature changed" from the dropdown menu.

I then edited the criteria to look like the image I posted, and added the command to turn the heater on.

Quick reload router.

PS! if I don't add the line whit House mode the event turns on the heater if temperature drops below 21C so I know that part works.

Both the Temperature sensor and the switch controlling the heater is zwave.

I am trying to get a heater to turn on if the temperature drops below 21C, but only if the house is set to sleep mode.

I have made similar events that use "Day of week" instead of "House Mode" and they work.

I have made an event I want to get executed only if the house mode is sett to sleeping. The event looks like this:

But it does not get executed no mater what house mode I set.

If anyone have a working event using House Mode I would be very happy if  you could post your setup.

After updating to beta2 I still have the same issues. I don't mind trying to make some new templates for this device if that is needed. Can anyone confirm that they are needed?

I have also bought a Horstmann AS2 RF, but I can't make it a part for my network. Does anyone use this device successfully or have any hints on how to get it to work?

I have been looking in the svn and found some changes to the z-wave system Is this maybe a fix? In that case how can I install it?

I am trying to get the EZmotion to work but have had no luck so far. It registers as a climate device, but the status i blank and I cant use it to make a scenario. I am using 810beta
